I believe a few people have been talking about this one already.
The real question is, as the Mets continue to underperform and remain in the midst of financial crisis, which star(s) will be the one(s) to move. Between Reyes, third baseman David Wright and rightfielder Carlos Beltran, the dynamic shortstop makes the most sense.
Beltran and Reyes are both in their walk years, but Reyes is having by far the better season. Reyes is hitting .335 with 19 stolen bases and a league-leading 17 doubles and eight triples.
He could potentially be a player that puts a contending club over the edge. A couple of National League counterparts are currently in need of an upgrade at shortstop—the Cincinnati Reds and San Francisco Giants.
While David Wright is reportedly on the trading block as well, a number of factors—including his current stint on the DL and the fact that he's signed through 2012—still give Reyes the lead out the door.
